Well I had my 2nd u/s yesterday to help date me again and just to check on baby. It looks like I am 8 weeks, 1 day, due 1/24/13. The baby looked good..it actually looked like a real little baby : ) Heartbeat was 176. I am getting more excited but still nervous. I know high heart beats are typical for this far along but my daughter who I lost always had a really high heart beat and it turned out her heart was over compensating (half was not functioning). So of course thoughts cross my mind. I have another appointment on 7/12, can't wait!View Thread
Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself as I might be on here off and on in the future. A little backstory: I lost my daughter at 21 weeks on 3/5/12. On 2/14/12 at our anatomy scan it was discovered she had Turner Syndrome and had cystic hygroma w/fetal hydrops. A really bad diagnosis and she did end up passing either 2/29 or 3/1. The worst day of my life was learning she had that fatal diagnosis. We knew right away we were going to try again. I bled all the way to 4/15 and 4/16 my bleeding was super heavy, they thought I retained placenta and my dr ended up finding some on my cervix. Bleeding stopped a few days later and I was told by dr. Wait a cycle or two before you start to try just as a rule of thumb. Well here I am today and I have 2 positive pregnancy tests and a drs appointment tomorrow. We were not TRYING and i can think of possibly the day it might have happened. We are however, happy. I am just very scared and shocked. I am not really that worried about a Turner Syndrome diagnosis again as that is a chromosomal disorder that happens as a fluke. It would be like lightening striking me twice. But I am so scared I got pregnant too early, that maybe my uterus lining wasn't thick enough or healed enough? Does anyone have any words of encouragement about getting pregnant again so soon after a loss? Thank you for listening!View Thread
